WHO ARE WE?
We are about to start our fourth round of IVF.
During our first round, we had 3 eggs collected and one fertilised. The embryo was implanted but sadly, I never got a positive pregnancy test.
In our second round we had 8 eggs but no viable embryos.
Our third round gave us 8 eggs and one embryo which was transplanted. After the dreaded Two Week Wait we were ecstatic to hear we were finally pregnant! Unfortunately the joy did not last long and I miscarried a couple of days later.
I thought we wouldn’t go through this again, but it has been almost two years since our last attempt and I’m not getting any younger! So we are going for round four later this month.
Another reason for the two year break is because just before our 3rd round, my then four year old nephew came to live with us. His name is Seven and he has just turned 7 years old! He is a part of the family now. His mum and dad are unable to care for him so we have become aunty-mum and uncle-dad! (He just calls us Jay-Jay & Dom)
I will use this blog to report how I’m feeling and how this cycle works out for us. Dom has promised to write from a man’s perspective too!
